Non-domestic hot water heating systems

The Chartered establishment of establishing prone Engineers (CIBSE) has released AM14: Non-domestic sizzling water heating structures, a finished program handbook that describes a logical series of techniques to assist engineers layout effective heating structures. The newly published booklet, masking water-based heating structures for structures except dwellings with a complete put in ability from 45kW as much as 2MW, is anticipated to obtain a hot welcome from the construction providers neighborhood because the final CIBSE advisor at the topic was once released greater than two decades in the past.

Typical locations of valves and related control devices in a hydronic heating system. ) Figure 1-12 Aquastat An aquastat is a control device consisting of a sensing bulb, a diaphragm, and a switch (see Figure 1-14).

Mixing valves are often used with high-temperature boilers designed to provide water at temperatures of more than 160ЊF. Motorized Zone Valve A motorized zone valve is used to control the flow of water through a single zone (see Figure 1-16). It consists of a valve body combined with an electric actuator. A radiant panel heating system will often use a number of motorized zoning valves to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the rooms and spaces in the structure. As shown in Figure 1-17, a motorized zone valve is used to control each zone.

All connections remain below the level of the floor except for the tops of the supply and return tubing. Valves and Related Control Devices Valves and similar control devices are used for a variety of different purposes in a hydronic radiant floor heating system. Some are used as high-limit controls to prevent excessively hot water from flowing through the floor loops. Some are used to isolate system components, such as the circulating pump, so that it can be serviced or removed without having to shut down the entire system.
